HOUSTON -- United Airlines says another Boeing 787 flight was cut short by a mechanical problem.

On Monday a plane leaving Houston bound for Denver turned back to the Houston airport because of a brake indicator issue.

United says passengers were put on other planes after Sunday's aborted flight, and the 787 is being checked out.

The 787, which Boeing calls the Dreamliner, was grounded for three months earlier this year after lithium-ion batteries overheated on two planes.
